Good attitude. This is a team that was afraid of missing the playoffs a week ago. Between injuries and an up and down season, the Ravens need to lay down a smack down and build some confidence and momentum heading into the playoffs.

How do you tip your hand fighting your brother?

We're both in the AFC-North,... what could either team possibly hide that's a game-changer?

Just execute!

"It also has struggled on the road, a place where it will have to win if the Ravens are going to reach the Super Bowl."

Maybe very likely, but not necesarily true. If we somehow moved up to the third seed, and both top seeds happened to lose, we would be at home. Just sayin'......

We could start out with our basic offense with Flacco and the second half throw in some option packages with Tyrod Taylor that nobody has seen yet. Tyrod is no RG III, but we could have some of the basic game plans that they use with RG to practice for the playoffs just in case we get into some trouble. I just want them to make sure they hold nothing back during the playoffs and are willing to pull out all the stops.

The fans (you know the people that pay the bills) deserve a good game by both teams. That way if you come out on top you can really feel good about yourself. We don't pay to see shills out there on the field even on the last week of the regular season.

There's nothing the coaches can learn that they don't already know the bengals have been playing the ravens for a good while now and if they didn't figure each other shame on both coaching staffs

I want Tyrod to have a career game. I know that the Bengals could knock off the Pats or Broncs should they win it in the back of my head. The offense will be up to Tyrod. This will be interesting to see and great for Tyrod to experience. Go Ravens ! !

I would love for Joe to play 1st half making all the calls himself! More like an in game practice at looking at the D and audible to the play he likes.

I want our fair place in the tourney. We are holding certain cards so why not play them. But...Remember that guys like Belichick are out there. Pees and Caldwell know what would be best for the Ravens.

Win, just Win; chances are we will play Indy anyway. The chances of NE losing to Miami in NE is pretty low. Sweep the bungles with a good on-the-road spanking, build some more confidence and consistency, i.e SWAG and prepare for Pags, Luck and company at the Bank.

I swear if we play our starters and someone important gets hurt there is going to be a riot.

We will have enough new wrinkles on OFF since the change to Cadwell, and our DEF hasn't had the same players/schemes in back to back games so we won't need to hide that either. Anyone can get hurt at anytime so resting players that are healthy means nothing. Resting players that are hurt is okay. Peace.

Hypothetical: My fantasy team lost to the top teams in my league throughout the season (a couple of them twice). Nevertheless, we crawled into the playoffs as a 5th seed. First round, I played the 4th seed. Fair enough matchup...I won convincingly; second round I played the #2 seed who trounced me in the regular season. I returned the favor, winning; round three I played the #1 seed, who had a stud team (unbeknownst to them I did too). DESTROYED him. Moral of this story: Once you're in the tournament anything can happen. I went on an improbable five game winning streak at the right time and won the championship. I agree with Pharaoh (thanks for spelling that correctly) that the Ravens can't afford any type of lull.

Contrary to what people think or what is being said, there is something to gain from winning this game, and assuming the Miami Dolphins will beat the Patriots--which they have played them close the past few years late in the year, at that is, assuming we win round one, New England could potentially come to us later down the line if both teams were to make the AFC Championship game. As slim a chance as that seems, I think the Ravens need to go after this game and keep an eye on the MIA/NE game and go from there.

A mutual agreement to rest starters. This is what I'd thought would happen. Both teams are locked into their playoff seeds, so this would be beneficial to both parties involved.

Momentum is overblown.... it is about attitude and game plan. Most of all, execution of that game plan by a roster that is healthy wins games! That's all folks.....

we do have something to play for if we win and NE loses we get the 3rd seed and a extra home game against them if we play them later
